Another over-hyped product. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy this bronzer, but I wouldn't sprint to Sephora to buy another one. My problem with this bronzer is that it's not too pigmented, and it doesn't really show up on my skin (NC25). It also breaks me out wherever I apply it. Sometimes I'll use it as a contouring blush by applying at the end of where you should apply blush and the top of where you should contour and it adds a nice "warm glow" to the cheeks. It is also pretty pricey. I will definitely not repurchase, since there are many other drugstore bronzers equal to this quality.
I have been looking for a good bronzer for a long time and after seeing Tanya Burr use this in one of her tutorials I went out and bought it. I really, really love this bronzer because it gives you such a nice, warm, shimmery glow. I've heard a lot of people say it leaves sort of a dirty streak, but the key is to blend REALLY well and not put too much on the brush. Personally I use the domed bronzer brush from Eco Tools which is really well priced (around $10) and it gives me a great result. I bought the bronzer in a set along with Desire blush which was around $50...it`s a bit on the expensive side but overall I think it`s a great product.
I've been looking for a bronzer for quite some time now, so i went to mecca cosmetics and found tried on this nars bronzer since i've heard such good reviews on it and believe me.
It is worth the hype! I tried on the laguna coloured bronzer and it is so nice on my skin! The makeup lady applied it for me and it gives a light natural glow, i absolutely love it and definately think it is worth the hype!
At first when I saw it in the Blush/Bronzer duo, I was a bit skeptic because there is some kind of shimmer and I was always for the matte bronzer *I proudly own Hoola by Benefit Cosmetics* but I too the chance plus for both bronzer and blush, 41 dollars for both was a good deal since ONE of each would round up to a lot more... so I bought it.
Along with my Desire blush, I used the bronzer and I was real happy with the result. Gave it a luminous touch since I did not add highlight today. But since today was a family wedding, I did use highlight on my sister and using Laguna, it gave it a double whammy! So I do recommend for those who love that luminous Kim Kardashian type glow, use Laguna and a Highlight like Albatross also from NARS! *and I hope to buy, the pigmentation intrigues me*
I will recommend this and I plan to buy it the MOMENT I run out
I avoided buying this product for years because of the price. I recently got it as part of a Sephora Favorites package and I'm in love. It looks dark in the pan but it's the perfect bronzer for my NW20 skin. I will definitely be purchasing a full size when I use up the sample.
I have fair skin and am a bronzer junkie. I really liked NARS Laguna. I used up all of mine fairly quickly. It is shimmery but not over the top shimmer. You can use it to contour but you can also use it just to highlight. Because I am a bronzer junkie, I did not repurchase right away because there were other bronzers I wanted to check out but I can definitely see myself buying this again!
This is my favourite bronzer of all time! It's non orangey and has a slight shimmer so looks nice and natural without being too shimmery. It looks good when i'm paler in winter but also when i'm more tanned in summer so i think it would suit most skin tones too. I normally use it to bronze my cheekbones but you can also contour with it using an angled brush if you want and the packaging is really nice because of the little mirror so its perfect to take around with you. The only problem i have with it is that its kind of expensive but tbh its such a good bronzer i would buy it again and again :)
finally gave laguna a try. so glad i did. i get a natural glow that i love! im about nw 20-25.
About me: NW13 (neutral-cool toned, very fair), blue eyes, Color season is True Summer, Baumann Skin Type is OSPW.
I tried this product once when I was NW13, it was too orange for my cool-toned skin. However, when I use self tanner in the summer, NC20-25, this bronzer is almost too light. I find the finish looks unnatural compared to others. Just not sure why this is a cult favorite.
I have been looking for a good bronzer for years because Prescriptives discontinued the one I used previously. I am very picky because I have sensitive skin / mild rosacea that is easily irritated. I have tried tons of bronzers -Benefit ,Guerlain , Drugstore brands...you name it, I probably tried it. This is by far the best one for my sensitive, fair skin.
What I liked about it-
it is not irritating
it is not real shimmery
it is not orange or red , more like a light brown/ tan
the color works on fair skin
there is a lot of product in the pan
the case is the typical protective Nars case which I like because I tend to drop things.
What you might not like- -
There is no brush included. I never use the brushes that come with makeup , but if you do then this could be a downside especially if you carry makeup in your purse and need to put a brush in there as well as the bronzer.
